Detroit-based HiredMyWay.com, the revolutionary new online recruitment Web site, Tuesday announced the launch of more than $1 million in bonus payments for job seekers who land a job using the system.
The Web site’s new bonus program pays signing and referral bonuses of up to $4,000 every time someone is hired through HiredMyWay.com.
A portfolio company of the Detroit Venture Partners, HiredMyWay says it is different from other job boards because job seekers can submit their resume into a smaller pool of applicants with the guarantee it will be viewed. Additionally, it eliminates the exorbitant cost employers traditionally pay to post their jobs online, because on HiredMyWay.com, companies only pay if they make a hire. The best part: every job on the site offers a hiring and referral bonus.
Individuals who sign up as HiredMyWay.com referrers share jobs with their friends and colleagues across their social networks, like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. If someone they refer gets hired, they receive the bonus associated with the position and so does the person they referred. Bonuses are determined based on the amount the company is willing to invest to find the right candidate.
Candidates who are serious about positions posted on HiredMyWay.com can choose to pay $2 to submit their resume into a smaller applicant pool with the guarantee their resume will be viewed. If the candidate’s resume is not viewed within 15 days of applying for the job, the $2 fee will be returned to the job seeker’s account. Candidates may apply for positions for free, but will not be eligible for the signing bonus.
Companies such as International Bancard, Magna, Jervis B. Webb and State Farm Insurance have already posted jobs under the bonus program.
